Even in prehistory, the River Thames was an elemental force with which early communities had to contend, and some of the ways in which they did still resonate with our modern society. The river has shaped the landscape in many different ways. It has provided sustenance and raw materials for thousands of years, it has been an artery of communication as well as a physical and psychological boundary and it has acted at various times and in various places as a sacred stream.

Join Jon Cotton, a freelance archaeological consultant and expert on prehistoric London, for our next Tideway Talk which will explore the ways in which the Thames affected the lives of the people who lived along its banks in later prehistory.

Doors will open at 6:30pm for a prompt 7pm start.
